1. What Ultra Chloraseptic® Anaesthetic
Throat Spray is and what it is used for

3. How to use Ultra Chloraseptic®
Anaesthetic Throat Spray

Ultra Chloraseptic® Anaesthetic Throat Spray is
used to relieve sore throat pain.
The product contains the active ingredient
benzocaine which belongs to the group of medicines
called local anaesthetics. It has a fast action and works
by numbing the pain of a sore throat. The product
comes in the form of a spray. It has a swivel head
applicator to help deliver the local anaesthetic direct to
the throat.

Ultra Chloraseptic® Anaesthetic Throat Spray is for
use by adults and teenagers, and in children aged from
6 years when supervised by an adult.
The product is designed so that the medication can
be sprayed directly to the back of the throat.
The following instructions will help you to get
the best results from your spray:
• Remove the cap from the bottle, and rotate the
spray head around by half a circle so that the
nozzle extends beyond the bottle
(see diagram below).

2. B
 efore you use Ultra Chloraseptic®
Anaesthetic Throat Spray
DO NOT use this spray if
• you have difficulty in breathing, noisy breathing
or severe difficulty in swallowing. Talk to your
pharmacist or doctor if this applies to you
• you know you are allergic to benzocaine or any
of the other ingredients (see Section 6, Further
Information)
• you have been told that you have a rare blood
condition called methaemoglobinaemia
• you are pregnant or breast-feeding
DO NOT use this medicine for children under 6
years of age.
This medicine contains a small quantity of alcohol
(less than 0.006 units per spray) to dissolve the other
ingredients. Contains propylene glycol - this may cause
skin irritation.
If your sore throat is severe or prolonged, or
accompanied by fever, headache, or feeling sick,
consult a doctor.

Nozzle in stored position Nozzle ready for use

• If this is a new bottle, or you have not used it
since the last sore throat, activate the pump by
spraying 3 times away from your face into a
sink. This will also help you to get a feel for the
pump action.
• Hold the bottle in your hand with your index
(first) finger on the pump, ready to spray.
• When you are ready, open the mouth a little and
point the spray nozzle towards the back of
your throat. The nozzle should be just inside your
mouth (see diagram below). This will help the spray
get to its target at the back of the throat.
